Chronic stress turns off the effectiveness of your immune system
According to Stanford University Medical School in research released in 1998 by Dr. Bruce Lipton, a highly renowned and respected cell biologist, stress is the cause of at least 95% of all illness and disease. Dr. Lipton reports that the remaining 5 percent is genetic and is caused by stress somewhere in the ancestry of that person. In other words, what we think of as genetic or a family predisposition to a particular disease or health problem was originally created by a stressful condition or event, somewhere in your family tree.
Even the U.S. Federal Government, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), says on their website that 90 percent of all illness and disease is related to stress. Just about any authoritative source you can name agrees – Harvard, Yale, Vanderbilt, The Mayo Clinic, and the list goes on.
Especially notable is what the Harvard Medical School says on their website. “Too much stress for too long creates what is known as ‘chronic stress’ which has been linked to heart disease, stroke, and may also influence cancer and chronic respiratory diseases ”.
Chronic stress in the body can come from many sources such as limiting beliefs about life, emotional issues, toxicity, allergens, bacteria, viruses, chemicals, dehydration, deadlines with work, overworking, fast foods, over exercising, financial problems, nutritional deficiencies, fungi and fungal, infections, genetically altered foods, headaches, migraines, lack of sleep, heavy metal toxicity, medical conditions, genetically altered foods, low self concept, parasites, prescription drugs, psychological conditions, geopathic stress, relationship problems and much more
Quantum Biofeedback can help release daily stress and actually program the mind to handle stress better as it comes up.
Quantum Biofeedback can work more deeply on the causes of the stress in as little as 2 – 3 sessions. Most of the processes are also designed to release the root cause of the stress.
Stress Management, Stress Detection and Stress Reduction Techniques helps explore cognitive restructuring- a strategy to change the way we perceive and how to challenge negative thoughts to avoid jumping to conclusions.
A 35 page report will help identify the warning signs and causes of stress.
No one can avoid all stress, but one can counteract its detrimental effects by learning how to produce the relaxation response with Quantum Biofeedback a state of deep rest that is the polar opposite of the stress response. The relaxation response puts the brakes on stress and brings the body and mind back into a state of equilibrium.
When the relaxation response is activated, the:
- heart rate slows down
- breathing becomes slower and deeper
- blood pressure drops or stabilizes
- muscles relax
- blood flow to the brain increases
In addition to its calming physical effects, the relaxation response with Quantum Biofeedback also increases energy and focus, combats illness, relieves aches and pains, heightens problem-solving abilities, and boosts motivation and productivity.
Coping strategies may temporarily reduce stress, but they cause more damage in the long run:
- Drinking too much
- Bingeing on junk or comfort food
- Zoning out for hours in front of the TV or computer
- Withdrawing from friends, family, and activities
- Using pills or drugs to relax
- Sleeping too much
- Filling up every minute of the day to avoid facing problems
- Taking out the stress on others (lashing out, angry outbursts, physical violence)
If your methods of coping with stress aren’t contributing to your greater emotional and physical health, it’s time to try Quantum Biofeedback
A lot of people see their physician, get a prescription, and stop there. In one study that looked at men who take medication, research proved lifestyle to be critically important. A “medications only” group had hundreds more heart attacks compared to the healthy-lifestyle group. Medication only cuts heart attack risk by 30 percent. It’s not enough.
Impact of Stress on Heart Disease Risk
Sources: L. Kubzansky, Cleveland Clinic Journal of Medicine, 2007; S. Yusuf et al., Lancet, 2004
Research shows that Americans’ heart attack risk can be cut by more than 80 percent by adopting five lifestyle factors: not smoking, a healthy diet, maintaining a healthy weight, regular physical activity, and light to moderate alcohol consumption.
Stress can lead to heart disease. For example, it can disrupt cardiac function, either by altering the electrical stability of the heart or by hastening atherosclerosis and increasing systemic inflammation. All of these processes increase the likelihood of a heart attack.
Though hard evidence is only now emerging, anxiety, anger, and other forms of distress appear to add to our risk of heart disease.
